As spring makes its refreshing appearance each year, a bounty of fresh vegetables arrives at local farmers markets, in grocery stores and maybe even in your garden at home. The cool crunch of an array of fresh vegetables pairs delightfully with the toothsome texture of whole grain sorghum. Salads, appetizers and main entrees, the possibilities are endless! Here are some of our favorite sorghum dishes that feature spring’s freshest offerings.
The flavors of a BLT over a combination of fresh, crisp lettuce is a fun way to lighten up a mealtime favorite. One of the best parts of this dish is it is easy to make with basic ingredients you probably already have in your fridge and pantry!
